Emily Ann Sonnett is an American soccer player who plays for Portland Thorns FC and the United States women's national soccer team.
Sonnett's impressive soccer skills were first noticed in high school. During her senior season, she led her team to the state championship game. She was also named the 2013 Georgia Gatorade Player of the Year that year. That same year, Sonnett helped her club team, NASA 12 Elite II, win the U-19 national title. Sonnett signed her national letter of intent to play soccer at the University of Virginia.
At the University of Virginia, Sonnett was named to the ACC All-Freshman Team following her first season with the Cavaliers. Sonnett started in all 26 games during the 2014 season when Virginia reached the College Cup finals. She was recognized as the tournament's Most Outstanding Defensive Player. Sonnett was named team captain at the beginning of her senior year. She helped Virginia reach the quarterfinals of the 2015 NCAA Women's Tournament and was named a finalist for the Hermann Trophy. Additionally, Sonnett was also named NSCAA first-team All-American, ACC Defensive Player of the Year, first team All-ACC, and ESPNW National Player of the Year.
Sonnett was then selected by Portland Thorns FC with the first overall pick in the 2016 NWSL College Draft. In 2018 Sonnett appeared in 22 games for Portland, scoring one goal. Portland reached the NWSL Championship Game for the second straight year, but lost to North Carolina 3–0. She was named to the NWSL Team of the Month for March and April. Sonnett was one of four Portland Thorns named to the NWSL Best XI and was a finalist for Defender of the Year.
Sonnett began getting steady call ups to the National Team in 2015. She received her first cap and start for the USWNT on October 25, 2015 against Brazil. Sonnett served as an alternate for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. In 2017, there was a six-month period where she did not get called into the team—a period which motivated her to spend the off-season in Australia, the perfect place for her to try new things. Sonnett got more consistent playing time in 2018, and started all three games the 2018 Tournament of Nations at right-back. Sonnett was named to the final 20 player roster for the 2018 CONCACAF Women's Championship.
Sonnet became one of the bright new prospects for the U.S. Women’s National Team. The versatile Georgia native appeared in her first World Cup in 2019. The United States won the FIFA Women's World Cup.
